Obtaining color images from the shadow of a sample

A research team at the University of Göttingen has developed a new method to produce X-ray images in color. In the past, the only way to determine the chemical composition of a sample and the position of its components using ...

A dual boost for optical delay scanning

Various applications of pulsed laser sources rely on the ability to produce a series of pulse pairs with a stepwise increasing delay between them. Implementing such optical delay scanning with high precision is demanding, ...

'Twisty' photons could turbocharge next-gen quantum communication

Quantum computers and communication devices work by encoding information into individual or entangled photons, enabling data to be quantum securely transmitted and manipulated exponentially faster than is possible with conventional ...
